It doesn’t come out until March 8th, 2013 and already “Oz The Great and Powerful” is generating tons of industry buzz.

A new behind-the-scenes video features interviews with the film’s stars James Franco and Mila Kunis as well as a look at the movie’s aesthetic.

“Oz The Great and Powerful” is directed by Sam Raimi and imagines the origins of the much-loved central character from the ever popular “The Wizard of Oz.”

Per the synopsis, “When Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot--fame and fortune are his for the taking--that is until he meets three witches, Theodora, Evanora and Glinda, who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity--and even a bit of wizardry--Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.”
